Stump the Bookseller Selection of the month

Description: stump.jpgB854: Big boat, child, black jelly beans, cakes of soap

It is a children's book from the 80's possibly that was about a child and a big boat and there was black jelly beans and cakes of soap somewhere in the book. Those are the things I remember most about the book. Thanks!

 Eugenia Vainberg
Painting with Thread. Passion for Embroidery.
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 5, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~

Eugenia Vainberg learned the art of embroidery as a child of eight in her native Ukraine. After a long break, her love of the fiber arts was rekindled following her emigration to the United States. Of her work, the artist says, “Colors are music to me. Tonalities of colors, shades and hues create the feeling of melodies in me. Embroidery became an important part of my life, a way of self expression and reflection. It is very exciting to translate from the languages of different media into the tongue of embroidery.” Eugenia's work draws its inspiration from the theater, ballet, music, literature, and the natural world, but her particular passion involves re-interpreting Russian avant-garde art using the medium of thread and linen.  Show continues through July 31.

Joy M. Kiser
Genevieve Jones, America's Other Audubon

Thursday, July 19, 7 p.m.
~ third Thursdays ~
Inspired by John James Audubon’s engravings  at the 1876 World’s Fair, 29-year-old amateur naturalist Genevieve Jones embarked on her own project, Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio. When she died suddenly of typhoid fever, her family decided to finish her work, a labor of love that took seven years. Kiser, a former librarian with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, will sign copies of her book, America's Other Audubon, as well as present a mini documentary on Jones, including details about the family's story, archival photographs and other information that could not be included in the book.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez: Love in the Time of Cholera

Thursday, July 26, 7 pm

~ fourth Thursdays ~

In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.
